I'm not sure what sort of insight I can offer, but what works for us is as follows: 1 Comcast Business (to legally allow reselling) cable-modem account ~ $80/month (+ 5 static IPs for $10/month) 1 TDS 768/768K business DSL account as backup ~ $80/month (+ 5 static IPs for $10/month) the above is connected to a used HP 4000M switch bought off of ebay with 48 10/100 ports for $500 almost 2 years ago -- should be much cheaper now -- and we have a Soekris 4501 (www.soekris.com) running m0n0wall (http://m0n0.ch/wall/) software doing the NAT/routing/rate-shaping etc. the community buildings were wired with direct-bury cat5 at construction time, we've had to rerun the cables to one building so far over a different path due to the original cable being accidentally, partially, cut (we think) and degrading in moist/freezing soil if you have specific questions, please ask Thanks, Adi Great Oak Cohousing Ann Arbor, MI, USA http://www.gocoho.org
